DuPage County Reckless Homicide Attorney

Protecting Your Rights When You Face Felony Charges

When a drunk driver causes a fatal accident, he or she may be facing charges of reckless homicide. This offense is sometimes known as vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter. Reckless homicide charges are classified as a Class 3 felony in most cases, and individuals who are convicted of these types of homicide charges may face two to five years in prison. In some cases, such as when a child is struck and killed by a driver in a school zone, reckless homicide may be charged as a Class 2 felony, and a person who is convicted may be sentenced to three to seven years in prison.

A conviction for reckless homicide will change the course of your life. While you may acknowledge your involvement or even some responsibility for the accident, this does not mean that you should not defend yourself and your rights from what may be an overreaching prosecution.
